Tinka Obtains Amendment to Drill Permit at the Colquipucro Silver Project and Stakes Additional Ground at the Ayawilca Zinc Project, Peru

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/19/14 -- Tinka Resources Limited (the "Company"), (TSX VENTURE:TK), announces that the Company has received from the General Bureau of Environmental Affairs ("DGAAM") of the Ministry of Energy and Mines ("MINEM") of Peru, the Directorial Resolution No. 097-2014-MEM-DGAAM, approving the amendment of the Company's Environmental Impact Study SD ("EIAsd") for the drilling program on its Colquipucro silver project.

The Colquipucro silver project is located in the San Pedro de Pillao district, province of Daniel Alcides Carrion, Pasco Department, Peru.

With the approval of the modified EIAsd, for a period of 19 months, the Company is pleased to announce that it is permitted to continue exploration at its Colquipucro silver project. This permit allows the Company to drill from an additional 34 platforms; of these additional drill permits, 19 platforms are located within the area of the silver oxide, and 15 are located within an area of coincidental chargeability and magnetic anomalies to the south. The latter area is believed to be a base metal target similar to the Company's Ayawilca zinc project located 1.5 km south of the Colquipucro silver project.

The Company also announces that it has acquired by staking a further 400 hectares at the Ayawilca zinc project which are contiguous to the existing claims to the southwest. The area contains soil samples that are anomalous in zinc and are coincident with the large, regional Colquipucro fault system that marks the western boundary of the Colquipucro and Ayawilca projects. A large area just east of this newly-acquired claim is covered by extensive sandstones which could hide further blind mineralization in the underlying Oyon Formation, similar to that found at the Ayawilca zinc project immediately to the north.

The qualified person for the Company's projects, Mr. John Nebocat (P.Eng.), V.P. of Exploration for the Company, has reviewed and approved the contents of this news release.

About Tinka Resources Limited (TSX VENTURE:TK).

For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
